An Insider's view of Lumi

What are some social events your company does?

We have an end-of-the-year, candlelit warehouse, Holiday dinner where we feast together and receive a gift from some of the brands we make packaging for. This year we had a Spooky Soirée for Halloween with treats and contests. We’ll have more casual, everyday events like Taco Tuesday, trivia luncheons, and outings around Arts District and DTLA.

Avery

Operations Analyst

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I personally collaborate by building strong relationships with all team members and I like to establish a common ground early. As an organization, we use collaboration technologies to work together in real time such as Front, Slack, and Airtable. We always encourage real time feedback and try hard to create transparency.

Yego

VP Supply Chain

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

During my first 18 months at Lumi, I've been able to take responsibility for some key parts of our code, and I recently moved into my first managerial role. Generally, we encourage developers to take full ownership of the features they work on, and I think Lumi provides a good track for employees who are interested in moving into management.

Phil

Director of Engineering

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I have a desk, but I never sit at it! You’ll find me working in our kitchen or sitting at someone’s desk working on a project. Sitting in the open allows me to pop into team meetings & makes it easy for everyone to ask questions. When a team is growing quickly it’s important everyone knows there are no rules for who you can collaborate with!

Jesse

CEO & Co-Founder

How does the company support your career growth?

Lumi really listens to our personal career goals. We have weekly 1:1s and team meetings where we’re encouraged to openly share our feedback. Everyone really supports each other's growth.
When I was offered the opportunity to teach a structural design class at Pasadena Art Center this year, the whole team encouraged me to pursue it!
